As a southern gal through and through…
I prefer my tea ice-cold and rot-your-teeth sweet!
Southern Sweet Tea
- Family-size tea bags (Luzianne)
- 1c. sugar
- Lemon (optional)
Place two tea bags in the bottom of your favorite pitcher.
Pour two cups of boiling water over tea bags and let stand for 5-10 minutes, depending on how strong you like it.
Carefully remove tea bags and stir in sugar until completely dissolved.
Add six cups of cold water, stir, and refrigerate.
Once chilled, serve over ice cubes with slices of lemon.
*This recipe makes 2 quarts of really sweet tea!
